The Wedding Diaries:
a Bride for a Day!

We were blessed with a breathtaking ocean view hotel room at La Concha Resort in Condado, Puerto Rico, thanks to my husband’s uncle, as well as the most perfect wedding weather. Can’t believe it’s only been a month since the wedding and i’m already sharing pictures!! Enjoy 🙂
A few months before the wedding I decided to write down a ton of cute stuff in this notebook to give to my husband the day of the wedding. To this day it’s one of my favorite gifts i’ve given him.
^^ me and my maid of honor, Valeria ^^
There are not a lot of pictures of me pre-wedding, because i was running a little really late and didn’t have time to take more, but the ones i have are beautiful! My photographer was Javier Olivero Photography! If you’re in Puerto Rico i totally recommend him, as well as his wife Olga Martinez who did my hair and make-up and never left my side throughout the whole day. (FYI – the first and last picture in the post were taken on my iPhone.
In reference to my post about Wedding Accessories these are the things i chose:
Something old – my minimalistic gold ring that belonged to my Mother
Something new – my birdcage veil with lace hairpiece from Bellissima Bridal in Miami, FL
Something borrowed – pearl earrings from my Godmother
Something blue – bracelets, a gift from my Okinawa friends 🙂
